    As the project winds down, I'll ask if they could get by without me for the last eight days, and if they were agreeable I'd leave early and start here on the 14th. But if they need me to finish it out, I'll have to do that."
    Thanks WordIsBond, Jbond007, LondonManc, MrMarkyMark & Kaiser78 - that's the approach I was going to take, and in this case I believe my client will be flexible. It's a permenant role on offer, coming from a short term contract that our team has been ahead of schedule on. I'm sure they'll be open to a conversation on the subject. There is no harm is asking.

    As to the less polite and constructive faux Alphas here; I'll let you go back to your playground now to play with your balls. As you were gentlemen. <mod snip>

    NLUK is a Yorkshire chap and as such, brutally honest. We also have people that just come on and post without searching, which really grinds his gears. Quite understandably I suppose.

    Anyway, if they want to take you on a short term contract to perm, offer to keep the same perm start date if that suits them but shorten the short term contract.
